What a crazy few weeks it has been! Finally I can start showing you some of the projects I made as a Display Stamper at Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event on Saturday. My favourite projects were perfect for our challenge this week at Just Add Ink. Tina has challenged us to Just Add R.
I Raided the Remnants for Rubber backed curtaining to make some Round Room decor. Enough r's do you think???
These are really simple and quite plain - like me really - but I love them. I won't go into how many swatches I made to get the right combination of ink and fabric but you are welcome - I have nutted it out for you! I found the best combination was rubber backed curtaining and Basic Black Archival ink. I coloured with watercolour pencils and used an Aqua Painter to blend. Of course you could add way more detail but I liked the white space - I felt it helped highlight the stamped images.
I was able to use several of my new products on these. All of the new products will be in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue that will be launched on January 3rd. Sorry to tease you! You can get your hot little hands on these products earlier if you are a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - what more incentive you do need to join???
Can you see the cute little leaves? They are called Petal Passion Embellishments and add a great touch to projects like this.
To top off each embroidery hoop I have added some Calypso Coral Ombre ribbon to match the watercolouring and some black and silver mini sequin trim for no other reason than I am addicted to using them - oh and I think they look great too!
Once the stamped and watercoloured images were dry, I simply placed in a 4" embroidery hoop, tightened and trimmed away excess.
Probably should mention the stamp set too I guess! It is called Petal Palette and comes with these fab images (and more) and some great sentiments. This is a stamp set I will be using a lot. You can see some other cards I made with it here.
So now you have something else to look forward to in the new year! So many new goodies to get your hands on! Now go and check out how the rest of the Design Team Just Added R.
